Man Arrested After Cat Finds Child Porn Stash

MICHELLE HOOKSMICHELLE HOOKS TANGERINEMember Posts: 274,2933,325765,00.html AUSTIN — They say curiosity killed the cat — but one Texan feline's exploration of its new home helped uncover a huge stash of child porn. The cat was snooping around its new flat in Austin, Texas, when it came across a gap in the wall. The woman who owns the cat remarked on it to a friend, who put his hand into the gap and found a number of DVDs apparently hidden by the apartment's previous owner. She took the discs to the police who discovered they contained child porn. Officers tracked them to Luis Jimenez, who had moved out of the apartment some time earlier. They say he probably forgot about the discs when he moved from the house. Jimenez, 24, has been charged with possession of child pornography and was being held on $40,000 bail. Possession of child pornography is a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in jail and a fine up to $10,000. There was no attorney listed in Jimenez's jail file Friday.

    Wow. This gives a whole new meaning to "look what the cat dragged in". I for one think the kitty should be given a medal for helping track down such a monster. Animal abusers and pedophiles are on the top of my mom's list for worst humans. Grrr

    I agree with you Jack, GIVE THAT CAT A MEDAL! Those who prey on the defenseless are rotten cowards. I wish there were more humans like your meowmy and mine.
